Mthethwa flays Asmal

IN a public show of unity, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa has come to the defence of his deputy Fikile Mbalula.

Writing in ANC Today, Mthethwa accused former ANC executive committee member Kader Asmal of failing to be a role model by attacking Mbalula.

"What kind of response is this? What will the youth learn from such utterances?

"What are the implications for our democracy if respected members of our society prefer death to accepting the prospect of a democratic outcome?"
